How to Turn Off A Propane Tank

Your propane system has some great features that include being able to turn off the gas easily whenever needed. To turn off the gas at your tank, start by opening the lid of the tank to reveal the shutoff valve. Then turn the shutoff valve to the right or clockwise to stop the flow of propane. If you have more than one tank, turn them all off the same way.

If You Suspect A Gas Leak

Propane's distinctively unpleasant smell is just one of the safety features of your home's propane system. If you smell a leak, take these steps. First, have everyone get outside and move away from the house, but remember to put out all smoking materials and other open flames and do not operate lights, appliances, telephones or cell phones as those could create a spark or ignition source.
